Unformatted text preview: The comparison is less than marginable. Also, the accuracy of our measurements can be proved by our results to part 6. By calculating the location where 200gm needed to placed to balance the system, we found the location to be (0.21in,-2.44in). When we placed the mass on the disk and moved it around until the system was perfectly level, we found this to be (0.22in,-2.44in). For our x-axis placement, we were off by 4.8% and on the y-axis we were in precisely the correct location. The equations at the top of my calculations section were proved to be spot on with the calculation of the center of gravity....
